I noticed the following confusing job title in a business roundup in the Post-Standard today: Director of Self-Directed Personal Services.
Just think about that for a second.
They’re “personal services,” but they’re also “self-directed,” so you’re apparently expected to handle them yourself, which implies you’re not exactly getting “personal service” (or indeed, “service” at all…)
And they’re “self-directed,” which means they don’t need a director… except that they do.
George Carlin could have built an entire routine around this one.
